Synopsis

The story is focused on Kenichi Shirahama, an average 15-year-old weakling, whose life turns to Hell with the appearance of the naive, beautiful, and strong transfer student, Miu Fūrinji. After Kenichi witnesses Miu's skills in martial arts, he joins the Ryōzanpaku dojo, the gathering place of those who are truly strong, which also happens to be Miu's home. After beating a karate student in a match, he is soon targeted by all the delinquents in the school. Since then, Kenichi's routine is divided between his hellish training with the masters of Ryōzanpaku, and his fights against the members of Ragnarok, a gang who views him as either a possible ally or an impending threat to their plans.

There is a kind of holistic quality to this on-going manga that makes it worth the read. I was surprised to see that no one had reviewed it yet. I'll keep this short and to the point without delving much into the story.

Perhaps this is your usual martial arts manga, but it is also so much more. The story is about a talentless, downtrodden boy who works towards developing his martial arts skills through sheer hard work and will - much like Naruto. Along his journey his enemies become his friends and together they wage war against a greater evil - read more

Another martial art manga? Maybe so, but History's Strongest Disciple Kenichi has something special that makes you want to know more and more.
(...You will regret after reading the last chapiter simply because you'll have to wait another week for the next one)

"Fighting for the people I love", another cliché but trust me, this manga won't dissapoint you one bit.

Comedy, action, romance, drama - This manga has everything you need.

(No major spoils)
It begins like in most martial art manga where the protagonist is extremely weak but unlike most protagonists, Kenichi has 0 talent for martial art and will have to work much more than anyone.
He's a read more

Both are about a boy that gets bullied and tries to overcome bullies by studying martial arts. Both of them are trained in several martial arts. They both have spirit, and don't give up easily. The Breaker is seinen, HSDK is shounen.

Both prominently feature martial arts and ecchi. Expect to see exaggerated fights and copious amounts of fanservice.
